Garmin Quatix 6 Smartwatch Review

For those that live their life at sea, the new Garmin Quatix 6 smartwatch has arrived to keep your marine adventures in shipshape form. Promising to provide all the best features found in their iconic Fenix 6, the new boating smartwatch also comes equipped with speciality marine features including comprehensive connectivity with compatible Garmin chartplotters, autopilot control, sail racing assistance, Fusion-Link entertainment control, data streaming and much, much more.

There are two variations of the Garmin Quatix 6 smartwatch being released, both offering the same in terms of functionality but giving options in aesthetics and durability. The first is the classic Quatix 6 Grey which showcases a 47mm stainless steel case, a blue rubber strap and Corning Gorilla DX glass. For those that need all hands on deck, the Quatix 6 Titanium smartwatch provides a lightweight 47mm titanium case, a matching titanium bracelet, an extra rubber strap and sapphire crystal glass which provides improved scratch resistance and legibility over the 1.3” high resolution display.

“The quatix series has made a name for itself as the most sophisticated and connected general-purpose marine smartwatch series on the market today. Whether you’re chasing bass or billfish, cruising or sailing, canoeing or kayaking, the quatix 6 has everything you’ll need on the water. With the addition of some of our most sought-after features, like built-in music, contactless payments and preloaded topographic and ski maps, we’ve redefined marine smartwatch standards once again.” – Dan Bartel, Garmin VP of Global Consumer Sales.

Targeted at those into boating and sailing, the Garmin marine smartwatch is also perfectly suited for anyone living a physically and socially active lifestyle. As well its BlueChart g3 coastal charts and LakeVü g3 inland maps with improved chart presentation, built-in activity profiles and performance metrics for paddle boarding, kayaking and canoeing, the Garmin quatix 6 has you covered for life on land with a wrist heart rate monitor, access to Garmin Connect, Garmin Pay contactless payments and music storage for up to 2,000 songs.

For on and off the water, both the Garmin Quatix 6 Grey and Garmin Quatix Titanium come equipped with satellite navigation and tracking functions combined with a 3-axis compass, gyroscope and barometric altimeter to guide you with confidence. The remarkable AutoPilot Control feature allows you to control your boat even when you’re not at the helm and change heading, engage pattern steering and follow a GPS route. The Stream Data app allows you to view all the data you need for smooth sailing including water depth, engine RPM, wind, custom data and more all directly from your wrist.
